It might be interestring to show comic books with similar covers. In some

cases the publisher borrows from itself, or one borrows from the other.

 

Covers could also be similar, but just by accident. hm

 

Since these two are nearly identical, I suspect someone may have borrowed

the cover idea from the earlier issue.

Here's an example of a cover crossover between DC and Marvel.

 

Tales of the Unexpected #87 March 1965, and Sgt. Fury #43 June 1967.

 

Only a small sweat worked up, at least the car didn't change.

Seeing double of Sgt. Fury and the Howlers coming at you is a good reason to work youself into a sweat. :o

There's an issue of Batman from around that same time that has the same thing with sunglasses. Not sure which issue, but I do recall it being similar.

Contrary to popular belief, Byrne was NOT the first one to use this pose...

You're excluding the "homage" covers, presumably. There are at least half a dozen Action 1 homages, from later Action Comics itself to the most recent Popeye 1.
